A little story about Kung Pao Kosher: A dear friend of mine has a multiracial family, but living in a primarily white world, Jewishly speaking, she didn’t expect there to be many others like hers. She buckled down and spent 30 years raiseing her own kids and made things work for her nieces, her adult African American kids, in-laws and grandkids. Her focus was always on her own family. After attending the multiracial Jewish panels last year, she said to me, “Dawn, there are so many Jews of color! I thought my family was alone.” She added, “In the past when I went to Kung Pao Kosher I thought it was interesting that there were so many Asians there who liked Jewish comedy. This year I thought, there are so many Asian Jews!”
Go laugh kosher, love kosher. Food – not kosher but delicious!
